Dell has come a long way from the Texas college dorm room from which Michael Dell first started selling made to order computers. However, the company has remained true to its founding strategy and can still build your PC or laptop to your exact requirements and configure it to order.
Dell laptops and PCs run the Windows (Windows 10) operating system, although some tablets running Android.
